  1. Preheat oven to 180 ºC.
  2. Mix the cacao and butter (at room temperature) until you get a silky paste. Add the maple syrup, the blended kale leaves and the baking soda. Mix until you obtain a regular lump-free dough and set aside.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat the eggs or the soaked flaxseeds. Add the mixture to the butter and cacao preparation while stirring.
  4. Add the flour and continue whisking until the batter is homogeneous.
  5. Place the dough in a previously greased mould and bake from 20 till 25 minutes.
  6. To make the topping, cook the sweet potato with plenty of water until it’s soft. With the help of a blender, blend the sweet potato and put it in a pan in a bain-marie. Incorporate chocolate and maple syrup. Let it all melt. Blend again. Put this mixture on top of the chocolate cake or decorate with the help of a pastry bag.
